Fraser Dingo

by Jill Morris

illustrated by Sharon Dye


line

Fraser Island is a sand island paradise off the coast of Queensland, with hundreds of 'perched' lakes, long deserted beaches, and a rich diversity of plant and animal life. Tourism is increasing, especially beach-camping. The rare dingoes of Fraser Island (the purest breed of their species) an endangered group of about 200 individuals, have had their natural feeding patterns changed by access to humans' food. The dingoes have begun to demand this food and a few animals have threatened the safety of the tourists. The major cause is human carelessness about the disposal of rubbish. This book has been prepared to inform children about this environmental dilemma.

Appealing watercolour illustrations form a brilliant background for a tough text written in a range of genres: narrative story, play, report (for 8-12 year-olds). Younger children will love the allied 'Fraser Dingo Colouring Book', which includes pictures of dingo pups, lake and creek scenes and the whales and dolphins found in the seas surrounding Fraser Island.
